TOYS TO LIFE: THE NEXT GENERATION

ePawn’s technology was designed around a single concept: to seamlessly link physical games and digital applications.

Gamers naturally play with their figurines, toys, dice or cards, triggering digital contents and interactions, thus enjoying never-seen-before game experiences.

ePawn’s technology captures everything that happens on the game board to feed digital applications.

Up to 40 objects equipped with off-the-shelf NFC tags can be simultaneously put into play on the board game.

ePawn’s technology will calculate their position, orientation and altitude in real time and at the millimeter level.

SCALABLE SOLUTIONS TO COVER ALL NEEDS

ePawn licenses its patented technology to companies across multiple industries, and collaborates with major chipsets manufacturers to bring its customers state-of-the-art turn-key solutions. We recognize that our licensees do business in different ways and, as such, we dedicate ourselves to adapt our technology to their specific needs.

ePawn has developed several versions of its technology to fit all gaming-related markets, including video games, toys, plush, board games, static figurines, mobile robots, etc. ePawn’s scalable solutions range from a smartphone gaming cover to a large flexible 100×100 cm (or even bigger) play mat.

For mobile toys and robots, the positioning system provides in real time each robot with its position and the position of other robots and obstacles as well, allowing to easily program smart behaviors. When a small tag brings Artificial Intelligence into a toy!

NEW PROJECTS

VIRTUAL REALITY

ePawn developed large flexible flooring tiles that can be assembled. This is the perfect solution to equip rooms and provide an affordable positioning system to simultaneously track numerous persons’ positions.

Thus resolving the problems optical technologies typically encounter, ePawn brings the missing piece to enhance the Virtual Reality experience and to reach mobility and plurality.

AUGMENTED REALITY

As most Augmented Reality solutions rely on image analysis algorithms to track objects positions, they often fail to properly track small objects and show great limits when hands interfere between the game and the camera.

ePawn’s position tracking system enables robust and efficient Augmented Reality solutions where the augmented animations are perfectly aligned with the real-world objects, thus creating incredible experiences.
